Mum fined $750 for smacking child

Yep, you read that correctly.

A Perth mum has been charged $750 and convicted of common assault, after she smacked her own child with a wooden spoon.

Tania was yesterday convicted of common assault, as well as using an unnecessary amount of force in the incident, after somebody noticed her daughter had an usual bruise.

The 35-year-old pleaded guilty to common assault and was handed a suspended $750 fine and a spent conviction in Perth Magistrates Court.

Tania says she will be disciplining her children (of course)... She said “I believe that discipline helps our society and our children, they’ve got to learn respect and integrity and you just can’t get away with doing naughty stuff".

What do you think? Is it PC gone mad? If this was a thing when we were kids, our Mums would be broke!
